Malcolm Mason

Malcolm Mason is an experienced employment lawyer with more than 30 years’ experience in UK and EU employment and labour matters. He represents businesses of all sizes from start-ups to Fortune 100 companies on a full range of employment and labour issues.

He is qualified both in England & Wales as a solicitor (1975) and as a US attorney-at-law in the State of New York (1984) and practiced for some years as both a UK and US employment lawyer in both New York and London with leading employment law firms, Epstein Becker & Green and Morgan Lewis & Bockius in New York and London, and most recently Eversheds in London.

In a career which started with representing Arthur Scargill’s NUM when statutory employment and labour law was in its infancy and, at times, rather acrimonious, Malcolm has developed a broad range of specialisms, including:

  • Creating and revising HR and employment documentation/systems
  • Engaging employees generally and drafting employment and related agreements for senior management
  • Individual and often difficult dismissals
  • Confidential and sensitive internal investigations
  • Discrimination and equal opportunity claims
  • Classification of workers (consultants -v- employees)
  • Confidentiality and restrictive covenants
  • Working time issues
  • Industrial disputes
  • Claims before the employment tribunals and the civil courts
  • Employee participation – UK and European works councils
  • UK redundancies and strategic advice on Pan-European reductions
  • Transfers of Undertakings
